As a product of the '80s and '90s I am angry that there are so many delicious cereals missing. Count Chocula (AWA Boo-Berry and Franken Berry), Fruity and/or Cocoa Pebbles, Cocoa Puffs, Captain Crunch, and Kaboom. OH! and Rice Krispies Treat Cereal!

For taste, my favorite as a kid was always Honey-comb. But Rice Honeys and Wheat Honeys always had the best premiums inside. (plastic animals, fish, dinosaurs, etc.) My mom would get home from the store and we'd dump out the entire box into a big bowl just to get to the toy inside. Sometimes there'd be TWO inside! One time somehow they actually put THREE in, and we felt like we'd hit the jackpot!

I always liked Cracklin' Oat Bran as a kid, call me weird. Also enjoyed Cinnamon Life and Strawberry Frosted Mini-Wheats. As an adult I prefer some of the Special K variants with red fruits or yogurt bits, Honey Bunches of Oats or something similar. Though Honey Nut Cheerios are okay in a pinch I suppose.

I've seen all of these brands sold overseas. Cheerios and Special K seem to have the biggest international market share just judging by shelf space.
